Socialite Bridget Achieng now claims that BBC took advantage of her and twisted interview on high-end prostitution
I was shocked when i saw the documentary
The three-part documentary titled: Sugar featured Ms. Achieng and two other young women confessing how they get sponsors to finance their lives.
On Thursday, the video went viral on social media and was picked up by several websites. Since then, Achieng has raised an uproar claiming that BBC twisted the story to fit a certain narrative.
Speaking to Pulselive.co.ke Bridget divulged that she produced the documentary with BBC for a period of two months but the UK media firm only edited it to portray her as a prostitute.
"I was shocked I did a 2 months documentary only for them to cut my interviews and make me look like I am a prostitute.
"Currently I am pregnant and engaged," she told us in a Direct Message.
Bridget further alleged that the media had taken advantage of her noting that her lawyers were currently involved in the matter.
“I hate the fact that media take advantage of artists and my interview being twisted and all,” she said while requesting to delete the videos on our platforms.
Pulselive.co.ke has learnt that the BBC legally involved Bridget in the production of the documentary.
After the uproar from the socialite, BBC edited the video and included a disclaimer on it.
"Following some inaccurate coverage of Bridget in the Kenyan media, the BBC would like to make clear that, as we show in our film Bridget ran a jewellery business, contributes to Nairobi Diaries and leads a charitable foundation for children in Kibera.
She currently runs an interior design consultancy in Nairobi, and has recently announced that she is expecting a baby," the disclaimer read.
